My boys do not watch a whole lot of TV. They never have. They would rather be outside playing, or wrestling on the floor with daddy...or going to the park with mommy and daddy. They are just not TV kids.
And when they do watch TV, like in the mornings, it is strictly the Disney channel. I've seen some of these other cartoons...and OMG WTH??? They have some of the most bizarre stuff on the TV that is supposed to be for kids??? NOT MINE!
So here we think...it's Disney how harsh can it be? I mean it's Disney, it can't be all that bad right? Well I am thinking I am going to start watching everything a heck of a lot more before I let my children watch it.
We decided to let Thomas watch the Toy Stories, and we took him for his 1st movie theater experience to see Toy Story 3....now this is how much my kid watches TV....after 30 minutes he asked to go home! NICE!!!
So now that my child has watched all the Toy Stories, he now tells his brother he is stupid, he now says the words Idiot, and Moron. Because that is what Buzz and Woody say. And because of Toy Story 3....he is now traumatized by anything monkey that clangs cymbals! Well not really....but he does remember that monkey!
So just because it says Disney....doesn't mean it's innocent and just for kids. When he wants to watch Peter Pan and he can't remember the name...he just starts jabbing at the air and says he wants to watch "that" movie!
And don't even get me started on books!!!! I read a Dr. Suess book to him tonight and it talked about KILLING!! WTH???? This is Dr. flippin' Suess! Killing??? Whoa....we're gonna go ahead and put those in the back of the closet!
So although sometimes I am so bummed that my boys won't sit still for even 30 minutes to watch a movie....I am glad that they do not sit for hours and watch these "innocent" Disney movies.
